I invite you, my Shiawassee neighbors, to indulge me in an exercise, a thought experiment, that might help us grasp an issue very much in the news: the health of our current police culture.

Congressman John Moolenaar, it is inexplicable to me (and many other of your constituents) that we have yet to hear one syllable — let alone a fulsome public explanation — of why you chose to vote against our $1,400 relief checks, not to mention the critical funding of aid to our schools, fi…

Small towns are the best. At around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, my GMC Canyon signaled that a tire was low and losing pressure very rapidly. I got off the expressway at the M-52 exit and stopped at Roadtrip Sunoco where I approached the couple in the vehicle parked next to me to ask where I might …

On April 20, I was walking two and a half blocks from my home to my friend’s house to walk with him and his small dog. Halfway there, at the corner of Dewey and Moore streets (in Owosso), a large, vicious, mean German shephard escaped from his fenced-in yard in which he normally barks on and…

I have some disjointed observations in these backward “alternate facts” times. I’ll take a FOX News tack, posing questions meant to stir emotions rather than positing solutions.

Take care, lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and serve other gods and worship them; then the anger of the lord will be kindled against you, and he will shut up the heavens, so that there will be no rain, and the land will yield no fruit, and you will perish quickly off the good…

This past year has shown us all that life can change quickly, and that we need to adapt. Our small community of Laingsburg has so many people that make a difference every day. But today I would like to highlight a few outstanding people that make the difference in the lives of 100 girls with…

Last week, we saw an attempt at damage control from our U.S. congressman, John Moolenaar. He must be feeling the heat for towing the party line and voting against the extraordinarily popular American Rescue Plan (ARP).

Amidst a handful of equally existential crises — COVID-19 , civil rights, gun rights/violence, voting rights — the Republican Party continues to deflect blame for these situations that are arising largely due to its own policies.

In all honesty, even the most conservative evaluation must grant Gov. Brian Kemp, R-Georgia, an A-plus for shamelessness as he signed his party’s absurd voter suppression bill into law.

In the course of the past few months, there has been so much negative influence in our everyday world that when something good and positive occurs, I think it should be recognized.

A newly released (and rapidly declassified) report from the director of National Intelligence makes 100% clear that it was Russia — and Russia alone — that attempted to denigrate Joe Biden, elect Donald Trump and sow division over our national election integrity. It was both the former presi…

This is a response to the March 14 anti-mask writer: I take exception to being accused of having a herd mentality. I am an independent thinker who happens to have a medical condition that makes it very hard for me to breathe while wearing a mask, but I do it out of respect for my fellow citizens.

The recent article headlined, “Republicans nationwide look to make voting more difficult,” hardly conveyed the true feelings and intentions of the Republican Party to do everything it can to attempt to silence the minority vote with 250 bills currently under consideration in 48 states, and e…

While I appreciate a recent writer’s interest in my recent letter, I want to point out she did not, in fact, respond to my comments at all, but rather attempted to make it about something it was not.

There is a hidden population most people have no idea exists. We are 40 million strong. We are the patients who deal with rare/painful/permanent/incurable/intractable pain who are treated as the dregs of society at no fault of our own. There have been 8 million to 10 million patients forced-…

A letter in Saturday’s edition of The Argus-Press asks the loaded question of readers: “Are we decrying the loss of more than 62 million babies to abortion since Roe v. Wade in 1973?” This letter writer claims she was “saddened” to read a letter in support of contraception and abortion rights.

It saddens me terribly when I read the letter in Thursday’s edition of The Argus-Press. I’m saddened that the writer and other supporters of abortion don’t recognize that with every abortion a life is ended, one that in all probability would otherwise have been born with as much right to par…
